Bath Guitar Festival (19 - 25 July 2013) celebrates 20 years of wonderful guitar events around the city this year! The guitar is unique in its appeal to people of all ages, musical tasted and economic means. No instrument is as accessible and versatile as the guitar, come and be thrilled by our concerts in every style! In classical we celebrate Julian Bream’s 80th birthday and Benjamin Britten’s centenary with performances and a new commission by Errollyn Wallen.
But don’t stop there: bring your guitar to our classes in Europe’s premier summer school, watch the stars of tomorrow on our Young Artist Platform or come along to our summer school and jam at Chapel Arts Centre. Day passes to the summer school are also now available!
